For the peaceful happiness of the people in our solar system
We are breaking the girls even when we make love to them
The Eagle and the Dove can fly 'round in circles a day or two
In the end, it's time to eat and drink, lose it all in a slow screw.

In the kingdom of the flyin' eagle, the dove remained at rest
Nothing except flying around the carrion to keep up the struggle
Paradise for the bird, goin' down wrapped in a feathered vest
Black and blue, deep purple bruises, corpse gets TAPS' bugle.

Love bleeds from the mighty Amazon to ole Mississippi's space
Centrifigal force gravitational collapse simulation in leather and lace
A curious, lucid mental streak in a twenty seven degree ecliptic tilt
No reason for a being to be embedded in cosmos' purple velvet felt.

Just remember that the Eagle flies as high as vivid vision allows
What goes up must come down is the #1 rule of flight's command
A little mating in the air, freefall mode is all mother nature's hand
Zero hour's Royal Scam's late, a long time before only God knows.

Storms kept my sails full of the four winds' flow and ebb powers
Water from sea to stream, hull mutated to accomodate bed floor
Sun fire day after day and star light night after night, price of lovers
 Fade away, your time's goin' to come, pay the piper at the exit door.
